    the waiting list response form asks if we'd like keep our files open for fall 2008 and if not accepted wish to be considered for 2009/not.
    More/less it is like if we don't make it this year,we're given priorities next year.That's the good part.
    Bad part: 1 year in the waiting.
    I just read your story...
    but emille, didn't you apply to LICHSON too?

    I have a question regarding Hostos's admission policy
    what are the GPA requirements?? coz if they are the same as BMCC's or Laguardia then there is no point for me to even bother changing schools just for a few prereqs. do you know if GPA has to be sky high?

    If you look up at their nursing dept's website ,you will find that their pre-reqs courses are different than other CUNY schools.
    Eng 2(Ltr)
    AP2
    Chemistry
    AP1 and
    Eng 1.

    In addition NLN is reqd and then your overall GPA too is calculated.

    When all this is taken into consideration,it is more work than just 4 pre-reqs stuff.It is very obvious that Eng 2(Ltr) ,AP2 and
    Chemistry are not easy as Psy 1 or Med Maths, so most students I've heard get in with GPA 2.8-3.FOr the exact figure,ring 'em up.
    How are your grades in courses cited above & your overall college GPA.Accordingly,i guess you can figure out.

    Here's the link btw,http://www.hostos.cuny.edu/oaa/PDF/Nursing.pdf

    As for LAGCC,I wouldn't encourage you applying here unless you screwed up only one of the 4 pre-req and are willing to work super hard to get that A. It's pretty much like BMCC.Last semester was 3.8


    The pre-reqs here are
    1.English
    2.CHEMistry
    3.AP1
    4.Gen Psy

    Ok Guys Update!!

    I did not get into Beth Israel...I was close..but no cigar!

    But I think I did get into another school..which was my first choice because its a BSN program...
    college of new rochelle sounds very promising to me, currently I am taking a pre-req ( a&p2), so they said they are deferring my acceptance until I finish those classes..but until then I still have an interview..so wish me luck!!!

    YAY!!! Smooches!

    I called the school ( Hostos) and I spoke with an admission conselor . she didn't encourage me to transfer coz she said their student are prioritized and since there aren't too many seats, most likely I am not going to get in
    however, I should go and have my credits evaluated by their school.
    I am putting this off for now since I am not going to register for this Fall, anyway. and then, in the fall I might just get to talk to the transfer conselor...
    thanks again, emille.

    Hi Solvita,
    In regards to Pace-the reputation for the nursing program is very good. I went to an open house for the nursing program.

    The program is only taught at the Pleasantville Campus, which is north of White Plains. It took about an hour on the train one way, there is a shuttle bus that picks people up from the train station.

    Second, the program is a 3 year program. I asked if there was a way to complete it faster, but there isn't. I also believe, you will want to check, once you start you have to take all Nursing courses at their school.

    Good news, they do evaluate your credits on an individual basis and I think that they will accept a "C" as a passing grade.

    Hope this helps some.

    Thanks a lot , studygirl, my friend decided to go to that place, I did not have a chance to question her about the Pace University. It's really a surprise for me that the program is 3 y. long. Also, some other a friend of mine applied to LIU and got accepted to accelerated program (3 semester program). However, you have to be prepared that the program will be very intense. You will be busy from the early morning till the late evening doing clinical and attending lectures afterwards. An that would be your life on daily bases. I know that LIU students who take NCLEX test for the first time have a passing rate above 90 percent. I hope the information would help someone to decide where to apply. I, myself, applied to LICHSON and Adelfy University and received a letter of acceptance from LICH for the evening program. At the same time I'm waiting for the results of the NET test . It's my second chance for the NET.

    Hey I'm new to this site. I also applied to Beth Israel and got waitlisted. When I handed in the form I was told that only 6 of the 15 on the waiting list still wanted to be considered (That was on June 20th). Beth israel was also my first choice.
